IGHSAU needs new officials

Sports

August 12th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union is weighing options in the hopes of attracting new officials for the various sports. Lisa Brinkmeyer of the girls’ union says over the last five or six years they have lost more than 400 officials.

Brinkmeyer says “It used to be that colleges offered an officiating class and credits. Well, those kind of fell by the wayside, although our officials coordinator Joe Oswald is working with some of the colleges trying to get that started up again. And also mentoring. We’ve got so many great officials out there. We talk to them a lot about ‘find some young guy or young gal in your community, to get them interested in it.'”

Brinkmeyer says there have also been discussions about the possibility of offering credits to high school students who officiate junior high contests. She says a national study showed that one in ten new officials don’t return for a second year.

August 12th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Martinez was strongest at the end of his eight innings and Jason Heyward had two hits and two RBIs, helping the St. Louis Cardinals edge the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Tuesday night in a matchup of the National League’s top two teams.

Yadier Molina tied it with a sacrifice fly and rookie Stephen Piscotty singled in the go-ahead run on consecutive at-bats off Jeff Locke (6-7) in the fifth inning. Kolten Wong singled twice for his first multihit game of the month and Piscotty had three hits.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth for his 34th save in 36 chances. The Cardinals lead the Pirates by six games in the NL Central and are 6-5 in the season series with seven of the games decided by one run and five in the final at-bat.

St. Louis is 72-40 overall, at 32 over .500 it matches the season’s high water mark, and 41-16 at home — both major league bests.

Chiefs’ Jeremy Maclin misses practice with strained neck

Sports

August 10th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was held out of practice Monday after straining his neck the previous day, putting his availability for their preseason opener in question. Kansas City visits Arizona on Saturday. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he was unsure when Maclin was hurt during Sunday’s practice, or whether the injury occurred during a brief scuffle with cornerback Marcus Cooper.

Maclin had an X-ray Monday morning and spent practice working out with the trainers. The Chiefs did get some positive injury news with the return of wide receiver Chris Conley to practice. The rookie has been out since the start of training camp with a knee injury.

August 9th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Khris Davis hit two home runs, including a two-run shot in the eighth inning off recent teammate Jonathan Broxton, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat St. Louis 5-4 Sunday and ended the Cardinals’ four-game winning streak. Broxton (1-3), traded from Milwaukee to the NL Central leaders on July 31, relieved Kevin Siegrist with a runner on second and one out with a 4-3 lead.

Davis hit the first pitch into the Cardinals’ bullpen for his 11th homer. Will Smith (5-2) pitched a scoreless eighth. Francisco Rodriguez worked the ninth for his 26th save in 26 chances this year. Davis earlier hit a two-run homer off Cardinals starter John Lackey.

Last Thursday, Davis hit a pair of three-run homers in Milwaukee’s 10-1 win over San Diego. He had been held hitless in six at-bats during the first two games of this series, a pair of shutouts for the Cardinals, before breaking loose.
